'Barks for Life' to raise funds to fight cancer next weekend

TUCSON - On August 18th, Tucson's Reid Park will be expecting a gathering of cancer survivors and their canine pals for a fundraising event known as Bark for Life in hopes of raising money for cancer research and celebrating their survivorship.

Bark for Life will provide another way for the American Cancer Society to raise money for their ongoing research against cancer. The event will also help bring the community together to celebrate both the survivors of cancer and the canines that assisted them, as well as bringing further cancer awareness to the Tucson community.

The event will be on August 18 from 6:45 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at Reid Park, 900 S. Randolph Way, Tucson, Arizona 85716. Participants can register online here, or on site at the date of the event. Check-in and registration on date begin at 6:45 a.m. to 7:20 a.m. and the opening ceremony begins at 7:30am. According to the Relay for Life web page, participants are allowed to bring a maximum of two dogs that are at least 6 months in age and each must be on a leash.
